, while E SM increases slightly over the 1000 IP simulation, but always remains less than E W . Similarly, APE remains nearly constant, while KE increases. Associated with the increase in KE is a transition to larger horizontal scales over the course of the simulation, as revealed by snapshots of PV, velocity, and ρ ′ ( Fig. 2 ). Even after model spinup, individual S vortices can be seen in vertical slices of PV, while plan view slices show cross sections of both anticyclones and cyclones. By 800

-wave advection of background PV gradients. The EM-APEX float measurements promise to provide a means of separating vortical motions from internal-wave motion, as planned. Glider observations. Four gliders were deployed in each case study, performing separate 12-km-long transects relative to the drifting array ( Fig. 16d ), to characterize the variability of thermohaline properties and turbulent microstructure (see appendix for details). During the moderate-straining experiment, glider observations revealed
